About Tony


Bio

I completed my undergraduate work in Secondary Education (Michigan Provisional Certificate) with a double-major in English and Mathematics and did my student teaching in Michigan in both subjects. I returned to school to complete a Masters of Fine Arts in English: Creative Writing (Poetry) from The University of Alabama where I taught full-time for several years and received multiple department and university commendations for my teaching.

I completed my undergraduate work in Secondary Education (Michigan Provisional Certificate) with a double-major in English and Mathematics and did my student teaching in Michigan in both subjects. I returned to school to complete a Masters of Fine Arts in English: Creative Writing (Poetry) from The University of Alabama where I taught full-time for several years and received multiple department and university commendations for my teaching.

In 2004, I received the Maureen Egan Writer's Exchange Award from Poets & Writers Magazine as the poet from Kentucky, and I have received an Al Smith Individual Artist Fellowship for Poetry from the Kentucky Arts Council.

For the past several years, I have served as the President of the Central Kentucky Audubon Society, promoting the enjoyment, understanding, importance, and preservation of birds and their habitats. Until recently, I worked as an Automotive Sales Representative at local dealerships, so can also speak to the practical "business" side of writing and math.

Most people are either "scientific" or "creative" -- left or right brained. I'm both. This gives me a unique ability to creatively present abstract mathematical concepts or to logically analyze literature and writing. I can make either math, or literature, grammar, and writing clear to you! In college, I was the guy that my English and Theater major friends asked for help with their Mathematics courses; I was also the guy who my Mathematics major friends asked for help with their writing assignments. I've been tutoring for a long time and enjoy helping people "get it."

GRE

GRE

I have tutored several people to improved scores in multiple areas. I can help you, too. I have taken the GRE twice, once via paper test under the old scoring system and very recently via computer under the new. My first time through, I got an 800/800 Quantitative, 710/800 Analytic, and 560/800 Verbal. This last time, I scored a 167/170 Verbal, a 5.5/6 Analytic, and a 162/170 Quantitative. There are easy tricks and topics I can teach you to improve your score.

Lyrical poem feedback

Tony provided super helpful feedback on writing an original lyrical poem for my high school English class. Several drafts later, I'm now happy with my final draft!

Personable and Patient

It was just our first session, but I found Tony to be personable, patient and knowledgeable. Came prepared with materials and we quickly identified problem areas to focus attention.

Knowledgeable and patient

He is an amazing tutor. He take the time to make me feel comfortable. I can't thank him enough for helping me with my grammar. Definitely will be back when I needed help! Thanks again!

Chariya, 1 lesson with Tony

Excellent tutor

Tony was patient and prepared for me. I am taking the GRE and remember very little for the quantitative section. I haven't had general math in a few years. Tony went over different problems with me that may show up on the test by using GRE practice material. For hands-on learners this was great practice. Thanks, Tony!
